a lot of taxes and a lot of stories are moving in california moving from deep in the ready to in the black and coming at a high price in california. is it likely democrats will sell the story, that spending is not,er so, spending cuts are not the way to go, raising more revenue, more taxes is? >> oh, look i'm certain that is coming. there is no question in my mind that is coming but i can also assure you, bill, what is coming from the other side in the long run that hurts economic growth. in the long run that will bring about less revenue rather than more. what you're doing there you're taking money away from job creators. ultimately you will kill jobs that will bring about less revenue and everyone hurts as a result of that. it is not just those at the top end of the economic scale. it is those along every end of the spectrum and especially those who are hard-working americans living paycheck it paycheck. that is who those tax increases really hurt. in the end the government loses as well. bill: senator, thank you for your time because as we're asking these questions and t
is behind us when it comes to taxs. >> take a look at what is in the package in terms of spending. additional savings from medicare and medicaid in it. savings from agricultural sub is sidis. the president already signed a trillion dollars of deficit reduction into law and committed to more spending cuts but we can't just cut our way to prosperity. we have toasting to invest in things like -- we have to continue to invest in things like education and energy. he put reducing the deficit in a balanced way to promote jobs for middle class families and that is going to be his guiding principle through the negotiations. >> i want to ask you quickly about the republican idea. would you support it but with the caveat they are telling the senate you haven't passed a budget in more than three years and you need to do that so we have a baseline for negotiations. >> well, let's revisit what the debt limit actually is. this is about congress paying the bills for what it has already racked up. the white house has made clear that the president will take a look at the proposal. they said it is e

on your debt. well we have 2 1/2 trillion dollars coming into the treasury every year in tax revenue. we can use that tax revenue to pay the interest on our debt. therefore, we will not default. all this talk about being a deadbeat nation, that belies the fact that we have never, and will never default on our obligations. the obligation being to pay the interest on the debt. we're not a deadbeat nation and we're not going to default, period. yes. period. martha: comes down to the big question whether or not you will cut spending in order to not default on your debt. and that brings us to a larger question or one of the larger questions, which is whether or not we will be downgraded if we don't become more responsible with our spending? >> interesting you should raise that issue, martha, because 45 minutes ago, fitch, the ratings agency said, if we have another delay in raising this debt ceilingsing, if we have this political standoff again just like we had in 2011, fitch says we may be downgraded. his name is david reilly. he is managing director at fitch and he said if it is just like 2

, connects to all of the spending and tax issues and are they going to have some way where they are going to say let's work together or are we going to have four more years of this petty stupid fighting on things that makes everyone look ridiculous and no one comes out the winner. >> chris: let me before i get to you, and what about the president's side of it? do you agree that he has take and more combative tone since the election? >> he has. but, you know, we were going to have tax increases for everyone and he and to speaker boehner's credit they wound up agreeing as did biden and mcconnell that we are going to give 99% of the people in this country a permanent tax break. that was a big accomplishment. of course, everyone dumped on it when it happened but the 99% of the people who got that tax cut i think are quite happy. i think they haven't figured out a strategy in the white house just like the republicans don't have one. >> there is two kinds of issues. issues the president ran on in the reelection campaign. he has credibility to say hey, i won the reelection. you can say to democr
instrument. the economy is very weak. we need to do whatever we can to support job creation. raising taxes more than was accomplished in the last few weeks on any category of americans is not a good solution to a problem that is fundamentally a demographic problem. >> neil: you don't argue that taxes should be part of it. you argue that we got the tax part of it. let's focus on the spending part of it, right? >> we can ratchet back people in higher income brackets receive once they become eligible. that addresses that issue. what we want to do is weak economy, the last thing we would do is just that. >> neil: just showing a direction at least more fiscally sound could pay rich dividends. not only the markets will jump for joy but it would show our fiscal savvy? >> will is great concern in jobs like mine that the government has lost capacity to find solutions to relatively straightforward problems. the debate is polarized and largely dysfunctional. what you are suggesting and i agree with, any evidence that washington is capable to find sensible solutions to these issues, it would be encour

to raise taxes and democrats don't want to touch entitlements it will be a heavy left but may bring optimistic. >> gregg: do allies of president obama maybe there is an opportunity to get big things done? >> they do seem encouraged following the house republicans' offer to increase the debt limit nation's built to borrow for three months and in exchange allow the house and senate to pass a budget. republicans would like to see a budget with spending cuts. here a key white house advisor on the g.o.p. offer. >>> we don't think the short term is smart for the economy. two or three months has uncertainty. we are please today see the republicans in the house drop their previous position which was, they were only going to pay the bills they racked up if they got what they wanted in deep spending cuts in medicare and other programs. that is progress. >> reporter: starting a new term president obama has reluctance will ri he is the one politician in washington who does not have to run for reelection. it be interesting to see what he wants to do to try to push big things across the finish li
's unacceptable for some republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they refuse to let tax rates go up on wealthiest americans. >> sean: gun at the head of the american people and republicans hostage takers and mr. president, comments like that are responsible for the gridlock in washington and whether or not mr. president, you like to believe it, you're to blame. and with us, stuart varney and co-host of "the five", dana perino, it never stops. >> at least he's consistent? good point. >> there are -- when there's a saying, you know, don't believe your own hype. i also think that in some ways presidents should not read their own press. there are always going be to be critics and i remember george w. bush did not spend a lot of times reading the nasty things that people said about him. he would say, look, this is where i think we need to go, this is a policy and help me get there. and he would try to bring in people from the other side to get that done. that wasn't always possible and people didn't always agree with him, but that was a bert approach and got more d
more revenue, through tax reform, by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it is fair, for example, to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down life heavy saving research so the that a multimillionaire investor can pay less in tax rates than a secretary. they don't think it is smart to protect endless corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans, rather than rebuild our roads and our schools, invest in our workers skills or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. so they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way where everybody pulls their weight, everyone does their part. th

and fund his first term agenda in the second term and that means, raising more revenue, more tax hikes. i think that people who make around $100,000 are really rich. you've got to go where the money is and looking for him to hit the middle class with more tax hikes in the second term. i think a top priority. >> paul: he's got to find the money somewhere to get to do this. dan, what about the theory or what you're hearing from liberals and cheering it, no more mr. nice guy. the president is going to take on republicans, way too compromising in the the first term, not that i recognize that president, but that's the line that they're taking and so, look,er erhe's going to put them in their place and demonize them and sigma advertise them. >> we are going to see-- they're looking for a look on the radio, the president of the united states like a left wing talk show host. we're in the midst of a revolution and it's a take no prisoners revolution. when he talks about the elderly talking about obamacare and medicare, and talk about not caring whether important enough to eat, that's food stamps,
